After more than thirty years in the energy industry, Aleida Socarras retired. She looks back on her career with gratitude for all she accomplished and, more especially, for the wonderful people she worked with. "Not every day was enjoyable," she says, "but overall, it was a remarkable career."
Now, happily retired, she has time to pursue the things she loves: traveling, reading, writing, spending time outdoors, and being an active part of her children's lives.
Like so many Amelia Indie Authors, Aleida's plan to start out with a light-hearted travel blog was knocked temporarily off course by events beyond her control: a worldwide pandemic, racial unrest, floods, and unprecedented fires out west, are some of the obstacles she met along the way.
